About the Rylstone Manor

Mike & Carole Hailston took over the Rylstone Manor in May 2006. Mike has always been an enthusiastic cook and with Carole’s knowledge of the Island, Rylstone seemed the perfect opportunity for a complete life change.

Carole runs the front of house operation. It's her exquisite handwriting that guests comment on from receiving their deposit receipts and Christmas cards as soon as they arrive!! Carole has experience of teaching massage, reflexology and anatomy & physiology.

Carole has also owned her own Public House and previously lived on the island for 10 years in Godshill. Our daughters were christened in the Godshill church. Our eldest Granddaughter was also christened in the same Godshill church. The draw of the island has always been in her family and she used to come to Shanklin every year as a child on the family holiday.

Although previously in national disribution for 20 years, MIke has taken their venture very seriously with full training in City and Guilds and an intensive course at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Since taking over they have maintained their high standards. They are recommended in the independent "Good Hotel Guide" every year since 2006.
